  3. Since when is Windows 10 free? I guess you meant it was free for awhile if you were upgrading from Win 7 or Win 8. Todd

    PC-12 trait. Read post #4 here. Todd
  5. vortex681 you're making the same assumption that the OP is making. Windows doesn't see the PS/2 type throttle quadrant as a separate device. The Saitek Pro Flight Yoke comes with a throttle quadrant. That throttle quadrant plugs into the back of the yoke via a PS/2 type plug. The yoke is then plugged into your computer via one USB plug and the OS (and FSX/P3D or X-Plane) then picks up the Pro Flight Yoke as a device with 5 axis, X and Y for the yoke and Z, Rx, and Ry for the throttle quadrant. I have a Saitek Pro Flight Yoke with the PS/2 throttle quadrant, an additional USB Pro Flight Throttle Quadrant, Rudder Pedals, and the Cessna Trim Wheel. Windows 10 Device Manager only shows 4 devices connected. That PS/2 throttle quadrant is rolled into the flight yoke. To the OP. Open up Control Panel in Windows 10 and select Devices and Printers. Look for the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke icon and right click on it. Select Game controller settings in the menu that pops up and then on the Game Controllers window highlight Saitek Pro Flight Yoke and then press the Properties button. You will then see a screen where you can test all of your buttons and you should see 5 axes. Move your throttle quadrant levers and you should see the corresponding axis move on the screen. If it works there then you have eliminated the OS as the problem. Todd
  6. I think your problem is a X-Plane 11 issue. The are many posts at the org where users are having trouble with X11 and Saitek throttles. Try your throttle in X-Plane 10 and report back. Todd

    777 Nearly Slams into Mt Wilson after LAX takeoff

    OK point considered regarding the turning capability of a 777, the radar refresh rates, and the Flightradar track accuracy, but if you were the ATC controller in that situation and (with the radar refresh rates you mentioned in mind) throwing out the confusing "turn southbound" instructions, what would you have done differently knowing that on your radar screen you see an aircraft heading straight for the San Gabriel mountains that you had given instructions to turn right heading 180? The point of my previous post was did the aircrew possibly misunderstand the turn right to heading 180 and expedite right turn instructions because their readback was continue right heading? Todd

    777 Nearly Slams into Mt Wilson after LAX takeoff

    Regarding the LAX incident. While I agree that the controller made things worse you do have to question the pilot's actions. If you look at the video linked in post #7 soon after they were told to turn left heading 180, they were told to turn right heading 180 (ATC controller correcting her mistake) and immediately afterwards told to Expedite Right Turn. The aircrew responded: Eva 015 Heavy, roger, passing heading 010, continue right heading. Passing heading 010 sounds like they were continuing to turn but notice after that "expedite right turn" instruction, they never did perform a right turn to heading 180. It seems as though they stopped their turn and continued on a heading of maybe 010. So it seems (at least to me) that the aircrew is to blame because the controller gave them a corrected instruction and the aircrew never acted on that instruction. Todd

    777 Nearly Slams into Mt Wilson after LAX takeoff

    (Trying to steer this topic back on track) At 5:58 in the video linked the track (green line) shown is wrong. You can't go around Mt Wilson at 5500ft. Mt Wilson sits on a ridge and isn't a mountain peak. The ridge is at 5710ft. but one TV antenna rises 971ft above that. For photos of Mt Wilson and its surrounding area go here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Wilson_(California) Todd

    About P3D forum. An old chap suggestion...

    I'm sorry but I don't get it. Why are the posts moved to the Hangar Chat when the description for the Hangar Chat forum reads: This forum is for the discussion of real world aviation topics and any other topics not covered in other forums. Please make sure that your topic isn't covered in another forum before posting here. The above mentioned posts do not fit in the P3D or FSX forums? Also why is there a post in the Hangar Chat forum about a user with a TrackIR problem in Windows 10? Doesn't that post belong in the one of the sub-forums of the Hardware & Operating Systems Discussions section? I'm not questioning how you guys are running the site but it's becoming a bit confusing figuring out what forum to read to find the information one is looking for. I'm very surprise to see you are moving posts to sub-forums based on that forums popularity or exposure and not the forums intended purpose. Todd
  13. Maybe this quote will give you a clue: For example, the Phenom has no avionics master switch. Amazing. But if you think for a moment, why do you need an avionics master? There are no conventional gauges or instruments to look at, so the three big displays of the Garmin system that Embraer calls Prodigy must be up and working to know anything about the status of the airplane. So the entire Prodigy system comes on with the battery switches. So the problem is you loaded the FSX Phenom 100 after loading a previous aircraft that had the avionics switch off. Todd

    Dobbins ARB Interference with ATC

    You either have Acceleration or SP2 but not both. If you somehow installed SP2 over Acceleration you have a problem. Todd

    Where am I?

    The mountain is almost always referred to as "Mount Baldy" by locals, to the point where many would not recognize the name "Mount San Antonio". The mountain was named by a local rancher after Saint Anthony of Padua. When American settlers arrived and surveyed the land, "Baldy", a reference to the bare fell-field ofBaldy Bowl that dominates the south face visible from Los Angeles, became the predominant name, and it has stuck. Nonetheless, "Mount San Antonio" is the official name according to the GNIS. The summit has two peaks: the main peak, elevation 10,064 feet (3,068 m), and a sub-peak, West Baldy, at 9,988 feet (3,044 m).[4]The main peak marks the boundary between San Bernardino County and Los Angeles County.[5] The mountain is in the Angeles National Forest. Yes the airport is Ontario Int in Ontario California. Todd
